Eddie Murphy – I Wish (I Could Tell You When) lyrics

Gonna blow it up, baby

I don't wanna worry you and never wanna make you scream
But I know it's almost over 'cause I read it in a magazine
You know the very thought of it, it makes me wanna cry
They'll shoot some bombs through the sky

Catching a bad one, baby

You can't hide in the mountains, can't run to your limousine, no
Because I've really got the notion that they're gonna get you and me
And the Lord's only gonna take a few up to his side
Now those are real lucky guys

And I know there's not one without a sin
'Cause we all knew one day the party had to end
I really wish that I could tell you when
So drop to your knees and pray now, let's begin to our Lord

You know there's something that somebody should try to do
That's become the head Russian and the U.S. President too
And put a stop to all the talk about the bombs up in the sky
I think we're all gonna fry, yeah

It's a puzzle, baby

And gone will be the mountains and gone will be the trees
And the sun will still shine, but there'll be no birds or bees
And the worst part of all of it, there'll be no you and I
It makes me just wanna cry, yeah
Ooh now, see, because

And I know there's not one without a sin, oh
'Cause we all knew one day the party had to end
I really wish that I could tell you when
So drop to your knees and pray now, let's begin to our Lord

Let's pray to Allah, pray to Allah
Say ooh, bop bop shoo wadda wadda Big, Big Brother
Ooh wa, ooh wa, ooh wa sha sha skibbidy ah
Yeah
Yeah, yeah

I don't wanna worry you and never wanna make you scream, no
But I know it's almost over 'cause I read it in a magazine, yeah
You know the very thought of it, it makes me wanna cry
They'll shoot some bombs through the sky, mmm
Yeah, everybody knows that

You can't hide in the mountains, can't run to your limousine, no no no
'Cause I've really got the notion that they're gonna get you and me
Hey baby, and I say
And the Lord's only, only gonna take a few up by his side
Those are lucky guys, no no no

He's only going to take a few up to his side, baby

And gone will be the mountains and gone will be the trees
And the sun will still shine, but there'll be no, there'll be no birds or bees
And the worst part of all of it, the worst part of all
It makes me just wanna cry, no no

And gone will be the mountains and gone will be the trees
I'll say it again
And the sun will still shine, but there'll, there'll be no
There'll be no birds or bees
And the worst part of all of it, the worst part of all
It makes me just wanna break down and cry, break down and cry
Say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
